Thomas Pico Chardonnay 2016
Thomas Pico is one of the most exciting winemakers in Chablis. In 2005 Thomas established Domaine Pattes Loup and has quickly risen to became a producer with cult like status.
In response to hail, mildew pressure, and drought in Chablis in 2015, Thomas Pico augmented his miniscule production with a Vin de France Chardonnay from organically farmed vines in Limoux. The grapes were sourced from certified organic vineyards in Limoux farmed by friends and acquaintances, then fermented and aged in stainless steel tanks.
Pure, focused Chardonnay with refreshing acidity. The wine carries a beautiful saline finish and is a fascinating alternative to traditional Chablis.
